‘90s Throwback: Urban Outfitters to Bring Caboodles Back
It was only a matter of time before this nostalgic beauty essential made a comeback.
Between the hair scrunchies, the return of Clearly Canadian, and the resurgence of Polly Pockets, the '90s are back in a big way. And in case you needed any other evidence, Urban Outfitters is bringing Caboodles back ($10; urbanoutfitters.com).
If you grew up in the '80s or '90s, you may remember the colorful plastic Caboodles case used as a carryall for stashing makeup, nail polish, Lisa Frank nail stickers, and other beauty essentials. Inside, various compartments held all of your supplies, while the mirror at the top turned the case into your complete get-ready station. Once closed and locked, the handle at the top let you carry the case everywhere (the mall and friends' houses were the most likely destinations).
To help us relive all of this '90s nostalgia, Urban Outfitters is now offering Caboodles cases in three color options. Choose from a lavender and mint, peach and mint, or pink and melon case. Small swing-out trays and the mirror in the lid make this case feel just like the one you remember from your high school days. Urban Outfitters even worked with the experts at Caboodles to craft the most historically accurate case possible.
While it all seems too good to be true (especially that $10 price tag), there is one tiny catch: the new cases are smaller than the ones you remember. While they're large enough to store several makeup brushes and a few products, if you love makeup, it's probably not going to hold your complete collection. Although on the smaller side, reviewers still agreed that this case was perfect for toting along on summer trips—and reliving treasured '90s memories.
